Blog Series – Summer Tag Art July Inspiration Day 1

Welcome to my Blog Series – Summer Tag Art July Inspiration Day 1.

Over the next five days, I hope to share with you five mixed media tags created with ephemera, die-cuts and found bits.

Each tag is inspired by the photographic ephemera which I used as my starting point.

I’m listing the supplies I used. Feel free to choose from your stash.

You don’t have to make the tags to look like mine if you decide to play. I want to give you some starting points and not directions, so you can explore freely. 

If you do create some tags along with me, please use the hashtag #mousaha and tag me on Instagram @mou.saha.studio and on Facebook @MouSahaStudio.

Is there a way to link up what we make? Is this a challenge for people to play along? I’m afrais it isn’t quite clear to me..,

Thanks Kate :)I do love sepia toned old photos and I don't have any, so these ephemera are the next best thing for me.

Hi Rebecca, that's a great question! Well, my goal with this venture is simply to provide inspiration to create something small because summer is so busy with very little time to create. It's not really a challenge with a deadline. But it would be awesome if you and others create and share your makes with me. I have updated my posts with that information. Here's what I added-

love your free use of the sizzix die cuts - so good to start fresh with white and then color from there.
